8:20 am
out of new york and we hope to see that reflected in maryland like you said we fell short last time, everyone is committed to a stepped up effort we saw so much joy in new york we saw loving committed couples who wanted to make that life long commitment to each other that is what maryland families want and what we want the legislature to provide for them. >> there are some that still stall this in the legislature that still have to be convinced this is the way for maryland to move forward what do you say to them how do you try to convince them this is what should happen. >> this is the main stream issue something we are seeing nationally, more than half of americans believe gay and lesbian couples should be able to make that life long commitment to each other we are seeing the same polls in maryland over 50% and what we saw from new york is that a republican lead legislature put marriage equality in place there all factors are moving in the direction of full equality for couples we would like to see maryland follow suit.
8:21 am
>> this were stipulations in the new york law as you mentioned republican legislature the more conservative members wanted to see protections put in place i know there has been talk about that in maryland is that what is in the works for maryland? might that help push it through? >> absolutely we thing religious exception is important people need to understand this is about civil marriage equality, about gay and lesbian couple going to city hall and getting a marriage license just like any other couple would and no impact on what religious organizations do they don't have to perform marriages they don't have to recognize them this is solely in the eyes of the government so, as we move forward, a religious exception is something we support and will be part of the legislation. >> there are some that no mat wear you do and say are still -- matter what you do and say are still going to be against this. what do you say to those people how do you deal with them if you know they are always going to be there. >> absolutely the couples in maryland, thousands of gay and lesbian couples just want to make a life long commitment
8:22 am
that every other couple makes and that doesn't take away from anyone else's marriage we hope that while there are strong feelings about this issue, that we can recognize couples living their lives, getting a civil marriage license, not going to harmony one, not going to effect anyone else's life just as we have seen in the states that have legalized marriage equality life moves on these couples are more safe and secure and families are stronger. >> does it make it secure, granted these are state laws when you look at the state in the northeast, you have cities in the northeast, new york city washington dc what is happening in massachusetts when more big cities urban areas come onboard does it make it easier for others to fall in line. >> iowa has marriage equality, gay and lesbian couples are living in iowa married and now in new york. you are seeing this is something no matter where you live or what kind of area it is, this is good for families it is good to strengthen their
8:23 am
relationships make -- allow them to make life long commitments and protect the children they might have or protect the family make sure they are safe. >> you in your organization have been pushing for this to happen in maryland when do you see it happening? do you see it happening for sure? when? >> i think this is going to happen the question is obviously when we saw great leadership from governor o'malley who said he wants to make this a priority he is going to step up his game just as a strong coalition of groups that has formed in maryland will step up their game to make this happen as well. >> best wishes alison back to you. >> 8:23 a.m., 81 degrees on monday morning another congressman involved in a sex scandal more on that. >> then later we will check back with holly morris live at kings dominion with more on how you can have fun at the park while supporting a great cause snoopy says it is a good thing. stay with us we will be right back

8:35 am
deadly situation, that than i nathaniel herd. >> this is a place that is one of the hottest parts of the planet, drought is fairly common but this is different this is the worst drought the area has had in 60 years then somalia has been going through a conflict, civil war for about several decades you have not just in somalia but the region more broadly the same number of people as metro dc, los angeles and chicago combined. >> famine in somalia, drought in other countries. >> that's right. >> desperate situation indeed from world vision, what are your colleagues telling you is the situation there, just in country. >> well, people are desperate. people's animals have died, their crops have died, and now they are dying by the tens of
8:36 am
thousands they are desperate some people are two weak to move others are fleeing to other parts of somalia, fleeing to both kenya and ethiopia as well and the priority now is helping them and providing life saving aid. >> what aid is getting through almost when you hear that tens of thousands, of people effected here it is almost seeming impossible to wrap your mind around that what aid is getting through and my goodness what is needed. >> all of us have a sense of urgency the priority of life saving assistance world vision is making sure people have access to clean water, providing nutrition supplements for the most malnourished of children, but it is very heart breaking, a colleague from kenya was telling me about a family who basically gave away their 14-year-old daughter, in marriage, to someone twice her age, because they simply don't have enough food to eat very heart breaking stories. >> we always hear along with challenges of getting the aid through as far as world vision
8:37 am
is concerned, are there any major roadblocks to getting aid to those who need them. >> the biggest issue right now is just with all that is happening particularly in washington a lot of people don't know in america and elsewhere what is going on. we hope others both in the u.s. government but also, american citizens share the sense of urgency and feel moved to give to organizations like world vision to help those most in need. >> we did several years back, i forget how long ago now, we were all sort of tuned into with a was going on then i believe in ethiopia as far as with a similar situation how do we get that ground swell again. >> there is a sense people have this is the horn of africa this happens all the time this is different this is the worst drought the region has had in 60 plus years we can save lives people again have to be moved and have to be willing to in these very tough times for many
8:38 am
americans open up their hearts and wallets and give and give generously. >> the united nations involved in trying to relieve pain here, how successful as the united been in different countries rallying around what is happening. >> the un actually along with u.s. government, began warning about this situation, back last year, back in august, we also raised the alarm in may of last year so they have been telling everyone willing to listen that there is a famine it is worth noting that famine has been declared in two regions of somalia without that life saving assistance it could spread to the rest of the south. >> the world hopefully will be watching and help as galvanized the last time this happened but it is terrible to see those pictures thanks for coming in and telling us about it, nathaniel herd with world vision. >> thank you so very much.

8:47 am
seekers they are risk takers, and we do find that can go hand in hand with drug use. >> let's talk about the thrill seeking and risk taking, is there something in the body make up or the brain make up that kind of aligns this thirst i guess for success, with the thirst for excesses that some times go with it. >> there is. what we are finding now we look under the hood of the brain and technology shows us that people like this actually have kind of a blunted pleasure center, so for them to get what they need to be happy or on top of the world, is a lot more than what it takes for us, out to dinner and a movie doesn't hack it with them. >> now does that go in line with you know just their -- how much they want this success and how much they will do something to get to that point or is this a result of that and just saying keep me entertained. >> well, it is probably a combination both of that predisposition, to need more to

get what they want, and then they are extremely skilled and secondarily this thrill seeking need drives them to go out there, and also, they have success at a very early age, and we have so many examples of people who don't know how to handle this. it makes them feel empty and depleted if it comes too early. >> when you talk about this and folks who died age 27 you can go back to robert johnson if you want to go back that far but a lot of people associated with the late 60s early 70s with janice joplin, jimmy hendrick, curt cobane a decade ago. is that -- when you look at that and these people are young you would think we would learn when we hear more and more of these it continues to happen decade after decade after decade. are people saying hey, because these are super stars they can do whatever they want. >> i think it is more the latter i think we know a lot of things we are not supposed to do but the public wants
8:49 am
something from these people and they are very eager to get the response from the public but not ready for it it makes them feel empty. they are hell bent some of them on filling that with alcohol and drugs because it feels very painful to them, at the same time. >> and it looks like based on what you are saying i think we can draw from that look if this was someone in our family that had these same problems or addictions we would treat it differently than here. it seems like we almost accept the fact that they use or abuse, any excesses, alcohol or drugs because they are famous it is okay. >> well, yes and no this is a very dramatic presentation of these problems, but we have lots of people who have drug and alcohol problems and their families really are powerless they try to intervene, try to talk to them but are not really very effective i have no doubt a lot of people help amy winehouse but the problem is she was resolute she was an independent person from a very
8:50 am
young age she was probably very kiss miss sieve of them. >> if you have -- dismissive of them. >> if you have someone like that -- look her claim to fame was a song called rehab she made the headlines for checking out of rehab or not wanting to go in can you do anything at that level? >> it is tough her behaviour is being reinforced by the fact that we are very interested in her excesses so for her performances which are in a way a form of excess otherwise they wouldn't be very entertaining this reinforcement and then the bad behaviour really does make for a person who is resolute in some of those bad behaviours. >> very tough to change. >> very tough and we don't want to make any -- draw any claims that all musicians deal with this but there are some but it is very rare. tough situation over the weekend touch to figure out alison back to you.
